3.6/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck with no freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Crystal clear orange amber with a well retaining wispy white lace.

Smell: Sweet floral hops with some malt and fruit. A tiny whiff of butter diacetyl is in the nose to.

Taste: Smooth with a crisp malty medium bodied mouth feel. A very pleasing blend of malt sweetness and hop bitterness hit the tongue at the same time. Some fruit and alcohol sneak in also as well as a light coating of buttery diacetyl. Finishes off nicely with a mellow sweet grainy after taste.

Notes: Extremely well balanced, drinkable and non intrusive. Another great pale ale brewed in the North East. The Yorkshire Ringwood yeast strain does some justice for this brew by giving it some complexity that does not overwhelm. Brewed in dedication to the city of Syracuse, home of the Middle Ages Brewing Co.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured by Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, NY.

A: Golden and light without much character. Nice head and lacing with light carbonation.

S: Hoppy nose with citrus and light malts on top of an almost wheat base.

T: Reminiscent of a wheat. Nice and citrusy with a lot of soft tinges. Lacking of any major flavors but not a bad drinking beer. Nice and smooth.

M: Clean and crisp with hoppy bitterness.

O: Not terrible, fairly forgettable midrange pale.

Serving type: on-tap

3.45/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A clear and deep coppery color with a translucency due only to the color, this beer struggles to maintain a wispy head that sinks down to foam with strong edging and achieves decent spotting.
As similar as can be in aroma and flavor, this pale ale is moderately hoppy with a focus on earth, leaf and mineral notes that make me wonder if it isn't an English version. A hint of estery sweetness comes up at the front and gives way to the bitterness, while a bit more flora comes out from middle to end.
It's more prickly than crisp and bitingly so. Its light-medium body holds a certain mineral edge to it.

3.71/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark gold color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a very thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, citrus, honey and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty malt character up front. Then some sweetness comes in from flavors of caramel, honey and citrus. The hops presence is strong but not over-powering and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style even though it seems to lean more toward the English Pale Ale style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while.
